Wha Whaaaa...

After perusing The Sart's photographs taken at the Governor's Island annual Jazz Age Lawn Party, I was pretty sure that I was born in the wrong decade.

Gents in woven hats and spectator shoes? Ladies sporting drop waist frocks, pin curls, and rouged lips? Sign. Me. Up. But then Wikipedia had to go screw up my fantasy with all their supposed "facts" about this time period, such as the impending economic downturn, Prohibition, and the prevalence of diseases like measles and scarlet fever.

Thanks Wiki, for being the Debbie Downer of the Internet.
